“Tomorrowland’s” Peter Dwerryhouse and Cannibal Lipstick‘S Chris West have ALSO been named as part of the Godzilla cast, which is now in post-production for May 16, 2014.
They join the previously announced Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Richard T. Jones, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Patrick Sabongui, Yuki Morita, Brian Markinson, Juliette Binoche, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, C.J. Adams, and Ken Watanabe.
“An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.”
The new film will feature a variety of monsters, although none have been revealed – until now. A leaked toy description over at Urban Collector reveals that one of the said creatures is named “MUTO”, and has eight legs. Sounds like the rumored spider-like creature to me, which is similar to Kumonga, pictured, a giant spider kaiju created by Toho Studios that first faced Godzilla in the 1967 Godzilla series film, Son of Godzilla.
“According to the journal of the now deceased Dr. Matsumia, Kumonga was a type of very large spider to dwell in the jungle of Sogellel Island. However, exposure to the radioactive storm created by the UN’s failed weather experiment transformed Kumonga into a 45-meter tall monster.” – Godzilla Wiki.
Gareth Edwards directs the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont, and Dave Callaham.
Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira) Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind.
